The Jewish Uprising Museum - This museum commemorates one of the few instances where the Jews of Europe fought back against the Nazis. In the end their efforts were in vain. Or were they?

You get the picture. I'm just trying to prepare myself for the return to the U.S.

On my last trip here I rode the train from Warsaw to Krakow. There was this guy across the aisle, who got up to put his pack up into the overhead rack, and as his shirt slid up ... his 9 mm was showing. Poland has .26 deaths from firearms per 100,000 population. The U.S. has 11.96.

Not sure I'm up for it.
